X-Ray Diffractometers

X-ray diffractometers are often used for phase identification of a crystalline test sample. These devices provide a powerful and quick process for identification of an unidentified mineral, and often, it supplies an unambiguous identification through the identification of cell unit sizes

The technology is based on the production of X-rays in an X-ray tube. X-rays are focused on the sample, and the diffracted rays are gathered. A crucial part of X-ray diffractometers is the angle between the incident and diffracted rays. These devices work best on material that is homogeneous and single-phase.
